This January, there are plenty of Japan-related events to get 2011, the year of the rabbit according to the Oriental zodiac, off to a great start. At the Embassy, there will be a private view of our current exhibition '100 YEARS ON - Japan-British Exhibtion 1910' with presentations from experts, as well as our ever-popular film screenings. Also in January, learn more about the art of Japanese woodblock printing with eminent artist Professor Tetsuya Noda.

In this New Year edition, we are privileged to feature a winter Haiku by Madoka Mayuzumi, a renowned Japanese Haiku poet. The spotlight is on the Embassy's Consular Section and we find out how 2010's Study Tour participants got on during their 10 day trip to Japan.

Finally, in success stories from 2010, we take a look back at the remarkable year enjoyed by the Leach Pottery in St Ives and we find out more about the Japanese architects chosen to design the V&A at Dundee.
